What I'm Crushing On this Week- School Supplies

Summer for my girls is more than half over already so naturally my mind begins to turn to thoughts of school supplies. Mostly these are school supplies I want for myself. Frankly, my favorite part of going to school was the supplies and I never outgrew that.

  2. I'm glad that I'm not the only one still hooked on school supplies!! The truth is, I never really liked school, just the supplies!!!

  3. I absolutely loved, and still do, shopping for school supplies. With all the fun stuff these days I find it hard to resist when I'm at the store! Can't wait til I have a little one going to school so I can fuel my obsession that way!

  6. Oh, I'm a total nerd when it comes to school supplies. I LOVE them. The smell of the supply aisle or stationery store, the textures of everything, and best of all...all the different varieties.

    I totally agree with Denise!!! That comment made me laugh.

    School supplies, stationery, any paper, new pen, journal, anything like that makes me giddy!

    However, I hate back to school (again, totally agree with Denise!) I'm sad to see my kids go back to school. But, we have fun shopping for supplies and I think they love them (at least Lauren does) as much as I do. But then again, she and the boys love school too. Which is a good thing.

  7. I too, love school supplies. Since my retirement from teaching, I find I need my "fall fix" and just have to buy some new markers and note book. One of my sweet grandchildren will start kindergarten on Thursday. The school district she attends is year round. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Oh - so good to know that I'm in good company. There's nothing like a new notebook and pen. I still indulge regularly! I should journal, then I'd have something great to use my beautiful notebooks for. I have a son who started grade 1 last year, so I was so excited to shop for supplies with him. Hubby came along... they both told me I took too much time picking out his folders he needed for school. Apparently the blue one is the same as the "Cars" one. "Does it really matter?", they asked. I can see hubby not really caring, but I thought Spencer would be excited. He is starting now to take more interest. Maybe this fall we will have to leave Daddy home for this kinda shopping and we can spend lots of time looking at all of it!

  13. Oh my gosh! I was in Target yesterday, and they have their school supplies in and it took everything in me not to go play with the pencils! My one and only school girl starts her second year of college soon... I really miss the trips to the store to get new basics. Now she needs $100 books, expensive oil paints and fancy brushes... not nearly as much fun (for me!).

  15. I eagerly await the school supplies coming out each year! We have 9,000 crayons in this house, but I find it hard to resist a new box! I must admit, though, that I now buy the pre-boxed supplies through the school for my kiddos so that I can focus on perusing the fun stuff for myself!

  22. Oh, how I love See Jane Work! I curse the day I found their website...and Russel & Hazel.

    I'm the same way with school supplies, though. And office supplies. I'm such a nerd. Even as a kid, I LOVED office supply stores (and hardware stores) ~ just think of the possibilities to create! I used to even spend my own money on my school supplies, I was THAT excited to get them. Yeah, I'm really, really a nerd.

  25. So very true for me too!!! I loved getting new school supplies and hated when everything started to get bent and used. I was just in the school supply section and I didn't even have a need to be there. Cute crushes!!!

  28. Hi --
    I think you might like the kraft paper bookcovers I started making this year -- They're updated and slightly design-y versions of the paperbag book covers we used to make as kids. Great for school, for book clubs, for trips. We just released our first Artists Edition, which are pretty cool. bookcityjackets.com
